There you have it, folks - another example of how religion makes people do obscene things in the name of holiness.
Obscene???
Really?



God gave you plenty of time to choose, and
soon He'll flush this world, and all who are against Him...
Not looking good for you!

Am I good enough to pull the handle... NO!
I deserve to be flushed too!

...let's point out some religious characters:
1)Tony Alamo - Headed a Santa Clarita commune. Convicted of tax evasion in 1994 and then resided in a halfway house in Texarkana
In 2009, he was convicted of ten federal counts of taking minors across state lines for sex, and sentenced to 150 years in federal prison.
2) Shoko Asahara - Founder of Aum Shinrikyo sentenced to death by hanging under Japanese law for involvement in the 1995 Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway.
3) Wayne Bent (aka: Michael Travesser)- Founder of Lord Our Righteousness Church, sometimes called Strong City. Was convicted of one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor in 2008. Was sentenced to 18 years with eight years suspended.
4) Graham Capill - former leader of Christian Heritage New Zealand. Sentenced to nine-year imprisonment term in 2005 after multiple charges of child sexual abuse against girls younger than twelve.
5) Matthew F. Hale - Former leader of Creativity Movement sentenced to a 40-year prison term for soliciting an undercover FBI informant to kill a federal judge.
6) Warren Jeffs - Once President of Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (a polygamist Mormon sect), convicted of rape as an accomplice (overturned in 2010). Jeffs also awaits trial in other states and in the federal court system.
7) Jung Myung Seok - South Korean religious sect leader and founder of Providence. Convicted for raping several of his followers.
8) William Kamm - An Australian religious sect leader and self-styled Pope Peter II who was sentenced to prison in October 2005 for a string of sexual attacks on a 15-year-old girl. In August 2007 his sentence was increased after being found guilty for a series of sexual abuses against another teenage girl over a five-year period.
9) Ervil LeBaron - Led a small sect of polygamous Mormon fundamentalists, and was convicted of involvement in the murder of two people and plotting to kill another person in 1981.
10) Alice Lenshina - Zambian head and founder of the Lumpa Church. Conflicts with the government over the sect's rejection of taxes led to a violent confrontation and her subsequent imprisonment.

12) Charles Manson - Leader of the Manson Family who is serving life for first degree murder in 2004 of multiple RICO, child molestation, and financial reporting charges and sentenced to 135 years in prison.

Religion and the Bible are poor references for your moral crusade, YaA. God ordered abortions - he even personally committed mass murder and genocide. You know it and it's been pointed out a thousand times, so you ignore what you can't rationalize. shrug.

<quoted text>Your entire case is built upon "it could be", or it is the only way. So the book shows their are other ways.
But thanks for dismissing something you know nothing of. Typical Christian. Why do you hate science?
My entire case is not built upon" IT could BE" It is built on it"IT must be" If nonintelligence did not create the universe and life ,m for which there is no reason to believe that is possible, Then "IT must be that it was created byID
GOD
Your case is built on 'I don't know , but I know ,but it surely was not GOD"
I will agree that the Universe was created from Nothing ,The Apostle Paul made that claim 2000 years ago.
But he plainly states it is God who created something from nothing....
To claim that NOTHING is the creator is absurd , based simply in an attempt to continue denying God's existence , in spite the evidence that Nothing is unable to create something from nothing and the established Scientific fact that only life can create life.

Let us remember that Krauss's theories are heavily sprinkled with
It may be possible ,it could be plausible and many other ,could be's..
At the end of the day ,he meekly confesses that he has no idea as to how the Universe came into existence....
In effect , what he wrote was abook based on Science Fiction.
Nothing more ,nothing less

GEORGETOWN, Del.— A Delaware pediatrician was found guilty Thursday of raping and abusing his child patients.
Detectives escort Dr. Earl B. Bradley from his office in Georgetown, Del.
Earl Bradley, 58, accused of raping or assaulting more than 100 girls he treated, was convicted of all 24 counts of rape, assault and sexual exploitation that he faced in Sussex Superior Court here.
The verdict was expected: Evidence of the attacks included videos that he recorded and Bradley's lawyers did not mount any defense. Instead, they are expected to appeal an earlier ruling from Judge William Carpenter Jr. that 13 hours of videos seized from Bradley's office was admissible.

ROCHESTER, N.Y.— A 51-year-old man has been convicted of sexual abuse for fondling the feet of three young girls at two public libraries in suburban Rochester.
Prosecutors say a Monroe County Court jury found Anthony Perri of Rochester guilty on Monday of third-degree sexual abuse and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Perri was arrested last summer after parents complained he had removed the shoes of girls in the libraries in Penfield and Pittsford and fondled, kissed and smelled their feet.
Assistant District Attorney Bill Gargan said Perri faces between 2-7 years and 3-10 years in prison for each sex abuse conviction when he's sentenced on Dec. 5.

A former El Sereno Elementary School teacher accused of molesting three former students was arrested on sexual battery and lewd acts on children in 2010, but the charges were dropped because of a lack of evidence, authorities said Thursday.
Three former students of the teacher, Armando Gonzalez, sued the Los Angeles Unified School District this week, charging that he molested them between 2008 and 2010.
It was unclear whether the alleged victims are the same as those who are now suing the school district.
Gonzalez, 45, was arrested in 2010 on charges of sexual battery, child annoyance and lewd acts. The charges stemmed from six incidents involving five children, said Drake Madison, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman.
The link I posted was just to show how bad pedophiles are in the JW religion. You excuse that "well other people do it too" is as always a crappy excuse. Not to mention the guys in your stories probably went to church somewhere, one of the guys didn't get convicted and one just had a weird foot fetish.

You should find better examples to get your point across. Here, I'll help you.

Still doesn't change the fact that child abuse is going on in many, many churches. Seems like God could at least keep his own house clean. Just saying.

There is NO excuse for DENYING--It goes on in ALL sectors of society.

Other than the stupidity of bigotry ad ignorance.

One certain sector is NO less abhorrent than another-- when it comes to that type of vile patheTicness.

We make it our aim ... to be well pleasing to [God].—2 Corinthians 5:9

In a children’s ministry in my church, we hand out cards to the kids when we notice their good behavior. They collect the cards and receive prizes for the good choices they’ve made. We are trying to reinforce good behavior rather than focusing on bad behavior.

When one leader handed a card to 11-year-old Tyree, he responded,“No, thanks. I don’t need one; I want to behave well, and I don’t need a reward for that.” For him, doing the right thing was its own reward. He definitely has good values ingrained in him, and he wants to live them out—prize or not.

But to get a reward should not be our motivation for right living. Neither is it to earn salvation. Living out of love should be our heart’s desire.

I liked this little reading, so I posted some of it.
